Scotland v Israel

Recommended Posts

There is no need for our best players to play in a triple header. The play off games take priority. We play our best team in these games and play the squad players in the nation's league games. If we lose the first play off game then the nation's league takes priority. If the top players don't want to play them then blood the young ones.

We might only have one triple header.

Could they not have arranged for us to play the Israel play off before the nations league game, that’s annoying.

Why not? Will Dortmund let Haaland play the triple headers?

The two ´warm up´ games will be handy though no? I think they´ll serve us well, rather than going in cold after 9 months...

Aye, that's what I thought as well. I just know what's going to happen. We will hump them in the first one, then the media will get all hyped up, and then we lose, the more important, second one. It's the Scotland way. :lol:

I think it's got more to do with whether Haaland is more committed to playing for his country than a lot of Scotland players are.

A triple header at home then a potential triple header away.

Have to say I would love that triple away trip if Ireland were involved. 😉

Aye I don’t what it is, I’d just prefer the play off was first. If we beat them in the first game they’ll know how to play against us and get a better feel for it in the play off. Or we beat them 4 or 5 and knock any confidence right out of them.

First game as it comes is the best possible warm up with a decent opposition and trip to follow. 
 

Important play off hopefully with two quicker than ever follow up  not unimportant home games . If that doesn’t prepare the team for the final or we’re already out then I’ll remind myself ‘‘tis but a game and we’re shite at being a nation in general. 
 

those three trips could be arduous or biblical ✌️😅

 

have we done three home games in a week ? Thought that was host team territory, which we were meant to be closer than ever this year as wasn’t.

Israel three times in three months is fascinating me . Especially after the two so contrasting performances against them quite recently 

on the team front I don’t mind saying I’m quietly excited about their potential more than I have been in decades . This unique pause in play has piqued my interest even more.

like yourselves, us  NI, and Iceland ( 3 of the 4 groups ) the last 2 sets of games  4 in total all shifting by at least a day sometimes two - play off on the Wednesday would of been less disruptive certainly for the middle set of games
